Planning IRF fabric setup

This section describes issues that an IRF fabric setup plan must cover.

Planning IRF fabric size and the installation site

Plan IRF fabric size and the installation site, using the following procedure:
1.
Use HP FlexFabric 11900 Switch Series IRF Configuration Guide as a reference to identify the
number of member switches that your system software version supports for an IRF fabric.
All member switches must use the same system software version.
2.
Select LPUs that can provide 10-GE/40-GE ports.
The switches require 10-GE/40-GE ports for IRF connection. For more information about LPUs, see
"Appendix B FRUs and compatibility
3.
Select SFP+/QSFP+ transceiver modules and fibers for long-haul IRF connection, or select
SFP+/QSFP+/QSFP+ to SFP+ cables for short-haul IRF connection. Select 10Gbase-T twisted-pair
cables for short-haul IRF connection.
For more information about transceiver modules and cables, see
compatibility
4.
Plan the installation site.

Identifying the master switch and planning IRF member IDs

Determine which switch you want to use as the master for managing all member switches in the IRF
fabric.
